Catch up on Vintage Jewels Geek's latest jewellery!

We have been working hard and have added plenty of  jewellery as well as many other items to Vintage Jewels Geek Blog. So we thought that we needed to showcase a few of our favourites from the last month. Vintage and newer jewellery makes great gifts and if you wrap each either in a gift bag or box it makes a good gift look a little bit special.  Vintage means that the brooches, earrings, rings, necklaces, cufflinks, bracelets, etc all produced between the 1920s and 1990s. So that's up to 70 years of fabulous jewels to choose from. It makes them unique and often of better quality than some of todays jewellery. But don't take our word for it just have a look.

Vintage silver ring that has been formed out of a child's christening bracelet of silver.

Sarah Coventry brooch - this one is from the 1960s. Most  Sarah Coventry jewellery is true vintage now and they produced so many different and quality items to choose from.

 Original 1940s vintage jewellery set of a floral brooch and clip earrings. We just love finding sets as they match and just makes it easier when you come to put on your jewellery.

Celluloid cameo brooch - many cameos are available in so many different looks. A cameo never seems to go out of fashion and can make an outfit look so elegant and feminine.

More antique and vintage brooches. The top all gold coloured one is antique. It has an Etruscan look and quite lightweight. I re-painted it in gold and added the blue detail to make it usable again. The lower vintage brooch is from the 1920s - 1930s. A large clear rhinestone of glass set into an ornate surrounding frame. The circles may have contained rhinestone but they are all now missing. 

A very unusual Asian inspired necklace from the 1970s. It has a circular clasp to the chain and is in an all silver metal. 
I used to sell vintage jewellery but now I just collect. I look for the unusual and things that are a bit different - as well as jewellery that can be identified.
